A primer set off in the open even with no bullet in the cartridge can expel itself(the primer) from the case with enough force to do some damage as a small projectile itself.

I have seen primers set off with a punch while held in a vise that ended up embedded in the persons hand. Could just as easily been an eye.

You are asking for trouble messing with your unknown cartridge situation.
